found artists: martin wehmer
a couple of evenings ago, i was app hunting when i stumbled upon artsy, "the art world in your pocket". artsy isn't really the app that you think it would be, but rather galleries and shows of artists (renown or not) and their works available for purchase.
upon discovering artsy, i also found new artists. one of whom is martin wehmer.
i think what strikes me most about wehmer's work is its obvious bold style: minimal palettes, prominent strokes of paint and simple subjects.
it's incredible that such heavy strokes can be perceived as having such fine detail (or for me anyway). how the paintings are rough in texture yet smooth. i just love looking at them.
i'm definitely keeping a close eye on wehmer. i can't wait to see what he creates next.
have a fantastic week, everyone.
